Emmanuel George Cefai

Freshman - 2,311 Points (12th March 1955 / Victoria, Gozo)

From Homer and the Bible he sang


From Homer and the Bible he sang
inspired

from Shakespeare Ronsard and Dante
verses he donned

then further to our times he turned
with Shelley, Byron, Burns, Keats,

then to the glue of his experiments
mixed me Eliot, Pound and all the rest
